What are you looking to achieve as a football player going forward?
I would like to represent my family, my community and my past teams in the correct manner. Whether that is with my play on the field, actions off the field and how I treat people within an organization.
What stands out about your film the most?
The ability to displace a defender against his will and playing with unmatched physicality. I also believe the way I move for my size is very evident to my success as a player.
How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?
As a believer in Christ, my identity resides in him. I bring my problems to the foot of the cross and lean on his understanding not mine. I’ve always been a person that has made the most of the situation I’m in and had a positive attitude towards things. I’m a big believer in everything happens for a reason.
What do you love the most about the game of football?
I love the camaraderie the sport brings. Being around my teammates and putting in the work for each other, is the most rewarding feeling. The game itself has taught me more life lessons than anything I have ever been involved in. I really appreciate the bond I have made with friends/family through the sport. I will forever be indebted to this beautiful game.
Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?
Sam Kamara is not only the best player I have ever played with/against, but he is for sure the most underrated. He is living his dream playing in the NFL like we all expected, but his character and work ethic within our locker room is under appreciated. Another player that was very talented and underrated was my high school quarterback, Kyle Fleitman. One of the best athletes I have ever been around and an even better friend. I cannot call myself a high school champion without his contributions.
